THE RELATION OF HOLY QURAN TO PROPHET (S.A.W) BETWEEN YEAR 610 TO 632

- One day an angel came to him at the end of Ramzan and told him to teach.
- The Prophet responded, that because he received no formal education, he could not read.
- Instead the angel held him closely and begged him to read again.
- The angel again firmly held down the Prophet and for the third time repeated his appeal. Finally, the prophet asked what was I meant to read?
- The first 4 verses of Surah Alac have been recited by the lord, 2 in the name of your God, who made it. Man-made from a congealed blood clot 3. Announce! And the best thing is your Father, 4. The person who taught through the book, 5.

COMPILATION OF QURAN UNDER RIGHT GUIDED CALIPHAS:
- Nevertheless, Hazrat Umar knew that those who memorized the Qur’an would slowly die and that would threaten the survival of Allah’s word after the death of many of those memorizing the Qur’an in the battle of Yaman.
- Hazrat Umar then recommended that a written copy of the Quran be rendered to the caliph, Hazrat Abu Bakr.
- He was then led by Hazrat Abu Bakr to Zaid Bin Sabit, chief scribe of the Prophets.
- The copy prepared by this committee was sent to Hazrat Umar, his predecessor. The caliph was then assigned to it.
- Following the death of Hazrat Umar, the copy has been given to Hazrat Hafsa, a Prophet’s widow.
- He bought the mushaf-e-Hufsa and asked Sabit and three other people, as the Qur’an had been revealed in that dialect, to make a new copy following the dialect of Quraish.
